289.1: Women of Valor (OT Gospel Doctrine Lesson 20, Updated)

“All the City … Doth Know That Thou Art a Virtuous Woman”


The brief book of Ruth presents us not only with powerful and assertive female characters, it teaches some of the same messages as Jesus did… that steadfast love and relationships prove more important than cultural categories. Naomi, Ruth, and Boaz all both work within and exceed their cultural contexts.
